BOWLING GREEN -- Emergency officials were dispatched east of Bowling Green Thursday morning for a fatal accident on State Road 46.

According to a press release provided by Clay County Sheriff's Department Dep.

Dickey suffered minor injuries and was released from the scene without further medical treatment.

The accident caused the closing the SR 46 for nearly three-and-a-half hours and is still under investigation.

Also assisting at the scene were members of the Bowling Green Volunteer Fire Department, Center Point Volunteer Fire Department, Poland Volunteer Fire Department, Clay County Search and Rescue and TransCare.

Calvin was my friend and he will be missed.... He was a good kid, and he was always kind to the people he met. He had no judgments about people whether they were for or against what he believed in. He just really liked meeting nice people and he liked being nice to them as well... so simple... so real... learn
